NatGeo Wild has released a promotional clip for their upcoming “Killer Shots: Great White Ambush”. The show will follow videographer/photographer Andy Casagrande as he attempts to film great white shark predation events (Carcharodon carcharias) around South Africa’s False Bay. The area is home to a large population of cape fur seals (Arctocephalus pusillus), which are natural prey for white sharks.
The promotional clip features footage of white shark breaches and evasive maneuvers by fur seals that manage to escape becoming a white shark’s next meal. The clip also provides some background information on white shark ambush techniques, along with the seals’ means and methods of avoiding shark attacks. However, the primary focus of the show seems to be on the planning and research performed in order to “get the shot.”
“Killer Shots: Great White Ambush” airs July 8 at 10pm ET/PT on NatGeo Wild.
